Can everyone tell me what program you are using to teathered shoot. I want something where I can see the images on laptop pretty quickly. If you can, tell me what program and if you remember the price. I dont need the program to do anything else, I use photoshop cs3 for all my other needs. Thanks for all the help!

Sorry, the answer depends on which camera. Many cameras come with software to do tethered shooting, but often it isn't' very good. If you have a Canon dSLR, then an outstanding product (the one I use) is found here:

Some of the latest cameras even have wireless methods of shooting tethered. So definitely which camera you have makes a difference in this case.

Cheers,

If you don't have to edit the images, just offer preview for buyers (which is what I do on some events I shoot), you can use a portable color TV. I picked up a 12" for less than $100. The people really love it. It mostly catches "blinks" and so forth. Lighting is set in advance, they hit the tape on the floor, click, view, (already paid), maybe reshoot if a blink, so it's pretty idiot-proofed.

Why does it matter to you which program you use. In my experience there is no issue with the program used to generate the preview.

How long the image takes to be generated is the issue and that all depends on your file size the capabilities of your computer and how fast your workflow is or needs to be.

I do 90% of my work with a high on location workflow. I spend about 90 seconds to 3 min with each client. With proper exposure and white balance settings I have had great photographs using a format one step down from my camera's Raw setting (Large)

I use canon and the remote capture software offers me to select pretty much any program on my computer as the primary preview program. I have an initial start up delay on the first capture image however after that, I simply keep the program running by closing only the image in preview.

Do you have any other questions?

I have a D200, also and I shoot RAW (.nef). The program is pretty neat, you can control just about all of the camera controls from the laptop - which is great if you are shooting macro. You'll want to get a USB extension cable and I also use an Instand http://www.instand.com/CR1/cr1.html for the laptop.

What is the connection between the stand and the tray on those? 1/4"x20? 3/8"x16? Something else? I would like to put one of their trays on an old tripod that I have.

Rob -

It's a 1/4" x 20 threaded stud which screws into a threaded socket on the bottom of the tray - like a camera on a tripod. Look at the "Make your own" section over on the left of the home page for their parts list and photos.

I'm a little confused. What is the purpose of the preview? Is it for exposure/composition information? Previewing with the client? Something else? Is it for immediate playback or just right at the end of the shoot?
